For better or worse, I like to think better, life has been a bit mundane lately. My mother came to visit which was nice but aside from a trip to the domes it was rather uneventful. I was starting to wonder what I was going to write about this week but things just seem to sometimes happen.
Last night I was driving home and a tree fell ahead of me. All the events surrounding it were perfect so I wasn’t in any danger while still being close enough that it was wonderous. I had just started driving after being stopped at a red light when I noticed some movement off to the right of the road. Then this huge tree started to fall. It fell so slow and it was so huge that my mind had a hard time comprehending just what was happening. I clearly consume too much Science Fiction because it immediately read as a huge beast slowly lumbering out of the woods. When it came to rest it was blocking half the road and was as tall as a house. Nobody was hurt and no powerlines were damaged.
When I got home I had to work on my daughter’s lunch. She had a field trip today so I quickly came up with an idea for her lunchbag. She actually liked it. They are heading to the museum so I thought it would be appropriate. I wasn’t sure if I could pull it off when I first came up with the idea but it turned out being much easier than I expected. Maybe that is the sign of a good logo? I did kill off my brush pen, which was a bit of a relief. The tip had gotten all frayed and I always had a hard time being accurate with it.
After dropping the kids off I headed to a park to kill some time before work. The girls’ summer schedules leave me childless about an hour earlier than their school year schedule so I have that hour to fill as I desire. While my work is very flexible, they do not want people coming in before their shift starts to avoid everyone leaving by noon on Fridays so I have been going for walks through a nearby park. This morning I was walking through the woods when a small fox just appeared in front of me. It wasn’t even 6 feet away. It just stood and looked at me. I started to get a little nervous but it turned and started leisurely trotting away. I figured,”This is how fairly tale adventures start,” so I followed it. I followed it for a good 2 or 3 minutes before it finally darted off. It wasn’t until I was leaving the park that it popped back up and I was able to get a bad picture of it.
So that is it for this week’s adventures. Hope you can find some wonder this week too.
